Henna is both an art form and a form of artistic expression. Henna is not only aesthetically beautiful, but also holds meaning and tradition as well. This in my opinion is what makes it so special. In addition to this, because henna can be customised to the individual in can take on another layer of meaning as symbols and images close to them can be added. Art does not get much more personal than that.

Her unique style consists of blending the traditional with Arabic influences and is one that she has meticulously honed over the last 13 years of creating her elegant henna designs.

The beautiful wedding ceremony of Shivani and Niral as photographed by Sachi Anand Photography has a resplendent red theme. Red is of course the traditional Indian wedding colour and it is easy to see here why its popularity has endured. Red is bold, creating a great aesthetic in photos. Not to mention the fact that red is the colour of red and therefore a perfect colour to feature prominently in an Indian wedding. Red features on both the bride and groom’s wedding outfits as well as being the colour of the bridal car which they both ride away in and so therefore is symbolically and literally a unifying colour here.
I think we can all agree that the pink and white flowers lining the aisle is absolutely stunning, and again is a classic for a reason. Another things that was wonderfully coordinated is the colour of the groomsmen and bridesmaids outfits. The blue works so well with the red, green and white worn by Shivani and Niral, giving way to yet more stunning photos from Sachi Anand Photography.

Here are some gorgeous photos from Preeti and Niraj’s Indian wedding ceremony, which were taken by Sachi Anand Photography. The beautiful photos perfectly capture the emotions of the bride, groom and bridesmaid, showcase their beautiful outfits and the room the venue where the ceremony took place. All this is achieved through a mixture of posed and candid photos.
Preeti’s stunning red lehenga is brilliantly coordinated with the venue decor and Niraj’s dark red dupatta unites the happy couple. I am a total sucker for those more natural, seemingly private moments, so the shot of Preeti and Niraj in the wedding car that shows Preeti’s wistful and happy expression is a real standout for me. Similarly the photo of Preeti and her brides is absolutely wonderful because the look of joy on all their faces is so contagious.
